Neodori is an endless runner-style racer game, you auto accelerate through some beautiful low poly locations, avoiding other cars and collecting coins/boost and fuel. All 27 of the cars you can unlock are aping real cars but they are not named, they look fantastic even in low poly. The music is very good and again they go the extra mile by having a Walkman-style pause and music control menu. This all culminates into a game that does have a huge learning curve in regards to drifting being so loose and each car seems to be stubborn in movement, but it does scratch an itch and I do find myself losing hours to it. Personally, I think the game would have played better if the lane changing was a bit more rigid and corners were wider for drifting but it is a great little game and well worth playing.
